Council hears charter study committee’s report

Celebrate the holidays Citizen photos by Robin Lee Michel

Santa Claus listens carefully as Jackson Pugliese, 6, tells him he wants a “train track.” Before Santa arrived on a fire truck at the firehouse, the holiday tree was lighted, music groups from Plainville High School performed holiday songs and town officials beckoned in the holidays at the Dec. 1 annual Tree Lighting celebration.

By Robin Lee Michel The Plainville Citizen Residents interested in serving on the town’s Charter Study Commission are encouraged to contact the town manager’s office to make an application before Dec. 31. The first meeting will be held in January. On Monday, the Plainville Town Council unanimously

voted to go ahead with forming the commission after a report was given by Tom Warnat, vice chairman of the Charter Study Committee. Since Aug. 4, seven residents have met six times as a committee to examine the budget process and other provisions of the charter. In making its review, commit-

Three months later, residents still feel Irene’s wrath By Julie Sopchak The Plainville Citizen

For most people, Tropical Storm Irene has become nothing more than a memory of a little more than three months ago. For some residents of Plainville, however, the storm’s damage is still very much a reality, leaving residents of Robert Street Extension displaced after flooding made some homes uninhabitable. Town officials worked to set up temporary housing for displaced residents in hotel

rooms, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency was brought in for inspection. An open forum at Wheeler Elementary School was held for residents to voice their concerns and to explore recovery options. Arthur Screen, whose home is located on the affected street, has been living in a hotel room since his home

has been deemed unlivable after his basement was entirely flooded with six inches of water coming into his living quarters, and his oil tank spilled, leaving the stench of oil more than three months later. “When the flood first happened, I wanted to be in by See Wrath, page 6 Citizen photo by Julie Sopchak

Arthur Screen stands in the kitchen of his home, located on Robert Street Ext. More than three months after Tropical Storm Irene hit, his home is still not in liveable condition.

Scaling ‘Ol’ Brushtop’ gives perspective on huge cleanup By Ruth Sharp Hummel Special to The Citizen

Wow! It’s another world up there. Plenty of townspeople were cleaning their yards Nov. 27, when I decided to take a look at “Ol Brushtop,” our town landfill at the end of Granger Lane. A steady stream of cars pulling trailers and trucks of all sizes loaded with brush branches and, of course, the ubiquitous leaves were really impressive. Friendly Bobby Fabrizio, in the gatehouse, waved me by with a few greetings and warnings about the mud. Several hard-packed roads and signs get you to the top of the surprisingly high disposal area.

Huge piles of brush, leaves and (I believe) chopped up wood were regimented neatly along the roads. I was there in the early afternoon and Mr. Fabrizio estimated that 150 loads of natural refuse had already come in. He said that there were even more loads on Saturday. The people who were unloading the vehicles all seemed to be enjoying the beautiful day talking and laughing. I was surprised when a number of folks recognized me and called out friendly greetings. Gosh!

That was nice. This was a best “small town” scenario. “Tidy” describes the whole area. I stopped several times in my cruising around to enjoy the great view of the Pequabuck Marsh and the Farmington hills beyond. There is no mess, no odor, nothing but the signs of the October storm and the changing season. Many years ago — that’s many, many years ago when I first starting canoeing — the Pequabuck River and marsh were favorite watery highways for my “Muskwash” and I.

One trip, I was lead canoe of three or four and I had a bad scare! Up ahead I saw what I thought was a dead baby,

dangling face down in the water — I slowed way down, reached out with a paddle See Cleanup, page 23

Economic Development Agency announces development incentives

Plainville’s Economic Development Agency wants you to be aware of local business incentives. The EDA is authorized to approve small business loans as a secondary lender where conventional bank products fall short of a firm’s business needs. Interest rates are highly competitive and terms of up to five years can be considered. Chairman Val Dumais proudly remarked, “The EDA has approved a total of $207,000 in small business loans with no defaults to date.” While resources are limited, the agency carefully reviews applications to ensure that the funds will be utilized for their intended purpose: to help grow the local economy. Loan funds have been used for a variety of purposes including equipment purchase, planned expansions and new hires where supported by a sound business plan. Loans must be securitized and are subject to town council ratification. Another local benefit that has met with great success is Plainville’s Tax Incentive

Program. Applicants may apply for a reduced tax rate over a specified period of time for real property improvements. This program is meant to encourage businesses to expand in place, rather than seek to relocate to another locality. The program also permits tax abatement for new construction on raw land. Abatements are considered in accordance with governing State Statutes and may be awarded based on demonstrated and positive economic impacts including additions to the grand list, increased employment, and demonstrable ancillary economic benefits. In the past year alone, more than 37,000 square feet of manufacturing space was constructed where consideration was being given to full relocation. The program convinced existing manufactur-

ers to stay and expand in place. The result: less empty buildings and no loss of jobs within our community. The EDA welcomes all inquiries. In addition to Plainville’s efforts to revitalize the economy, the State of Connecticut has created new business incentives worth mention. On Oct. 26, the State Legislature passed Public Act 11-1, known as the Jobs Bill. The bill was designed to support small business and spur innovation. It also seeks to improve workforce development programs, reduce regulatory headaches, and enhance the state’s existing economic development tools.

The Plainville Citizen — Thursday, December 8, 2011

Council Continued from page 1

tee members took into consideration comments made at the Aug. 29 public hearing and independently in writing. In the final report read by Warnat, the recommendation was made to move ahead with forming the commission. The budget process was at the forefront of all discussions, according to the report. “People who provided

input regarding the budget generally had a similar theme — that is — ‘something needs to be done about the third vote.’” Under the present process, the third budget vote “is meaningless because no changes can be made if the budget is defeated,” according to the report. Recommendations included: eliminating the all-day vote and reverting back to the town meeting format, which allows for voters to participate in the budget discussion; eliminate the all-day vote and

allow the town council to set the budget, a process that is followed by Southington, Bristol and New Britain; eliminate the third vote and allow the town council to change the budget after the vote if the budget is defeated. Other points followed the models of two towns, Farmington and Glastonbury. In the Farmington model, there are only two referendum votes, before the council can set the budget with the stipulation that it be less than the rejected budget, requiring 15 percent participation, and that the recommended budget can be amended at a town meeting as long as 300 people are present and two-thirds approve any changes.

In the Glastonbury model, the council adopts a budget and sets the mill rate. “If people are unhappy with that decision, a budget referendum petition signed by 8 percent of the voters must be filed within 21 days. There is a maximum of one budget referendum per year,” with other stipulations as well. Three additional items were raised that pertained to a revised budget process, including whether to hold a separate vote for the town and board of education budgets. In the past six years, Farmington has averaged 28.8 percent voter participation with two budget votes. “This has been a long time

coming, hope it gets under way quickly, get some things changed,” said Scott Saunders, councilman and Charter Study Committee member. Other residents who served on the committee were Rick Drezek, chairman and a newly-elected councilman, Christopher Wazorko, councilman, Robert Berube, Bob Cornish and Steve Martino. In other business, Roadways Department Superintendent Dominick Moschini reported on the storm debris collection. Overall, residents have been diligent about bringing their leaves to the

The Plainville Citizen — Thursday, December 8, 2011 water flooded up to the ceiling in his basement, causing the hardwood in his living quarters to buckle. “It’s not easy, I feel like we were still left behind,” Corriveau said. “The town feels that everything’s peachy keen because nobody’s screaming anymore.” Screen said he received a limited amount of money to pay for the hotel room he is staying in, and that FEMA said they would pay for him to live in an apartment, but he cannot find tenancy for a month-to-month basis that is also pet-friendly. “I couldn’t sign a one-year lease not knowing how long it

That date obviously came and went,” Screen said. “Then I was shooting for Thanksgiving and that date came and went, now I’m shooting for Christmas, which is three weeks away, and I’m really questioning whether or not it’s going to be after the first of the year at this point.” John Corriveau, who lives across the street from Screen, has been going through similar difficulties, having to stay with relatives for the time being and going back and forth to the house every day after

Cat needs home

Continued from page 4 transfer station; 13,000 yards have been delivered thus far, with 17,800 yards on average collected annually by the town. This year, because of the Storm Alfred debris collection, the town is relying on residents to handle their leaves. Neighbors have been helping each other, Moschini said. “Most of the town is in good shape.” However, the transfer station will only be open until Dec. 16 to accept leaves. Roadways personnel said leaves left in the street will interfere with snow removal.

A cat that was found on the railroad tracks in Plainville needs a permanent home. The green-eyed grey tiger cat, when she was found in September, was wearing a very tight flea collar and shredded red collar. The foster mother named her Zoey and said she is “sweet, a lover.” Unfortunately, she is not getting along with other house pets and needs a new home. If someone is interested in adopting Zoey, call Laura at (860) 505-7004.

She was going across the street from Anthony’s Service Station to Walgreen’s. Not one person stopped to help this woman. I guess you had somewhere important to go, something important to do. One woman yelled from her car, to ask if she was alright, while that woman yelled, the man behind her beeped his horn. (I assume he had something really important to do). Most people just slowed down and looked at her. To ease your minds, know she was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

I also was on my way somewhere, something important to do, but nothing that could not wait to help someone in need. My wish for you all is this does not ever happen to yourself, an aunt, mother, child or anyone that you love.; that someone takes the time to stop, to offer you a hand to hold, a soft word to be given, that someone comforts your loved ones or yourself. I was very disappointed in the people of Plainville, and hopefully people will stop and take a few minutes to help someone in need. Nancy Medeska Plainville

Then he said, “I’m a veteran and just wanted to clean it up.” I said, “You should be proud of yourself.” I didn’t get his name but maybe it’s just as well as it’s private property. I’ll bet Ruth Hummel, our

Fundraiser honors Spagna Making dreams possible is what Joe Spagna will be remembered for as his motto

“Whatever It Takes” expresses. A group of teachers from the Middle School of Plainville will be having a fundraising event at Hawk’s Landing Country Club in Southington, on Thursday, Dec. 15, at 6 p.m. This event will include a pasta dinner, silent auction, 50/50 raffle, door prizes and the sale of “Whatever It Takes” bracelets. There will be a cash bar. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut and will benefit a child with a lifethreatening medical condition. Spagna was not just a dedicated teacher at the Middle School of Plainville for the past 34 years but was also a supervisor for American Medical Response, a ski patrol member at Mount Southington, and a volunteer firefighter in Southington. He was also an active member of UNICO and Mary Our Queen Church in Southington. Spagna, a devoted father and husband, enjoyed life to the fullest as an avid scuba diver, skier, and traveler. He touched many lives as a mentor to students and teachers alike, which earned him the recognition as Teacher of the Year in 1993. Spagna died Aug. 28. One of his former students put it best, “He always encouraged freedom of creativity and gave us the opportunity to have confidence in ourselves.” If anyone is interested in attending this event or donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut in Spagna’s memory, contact Denise Grodzicki at denisegrodzicki@gmail.com.

Battle-tested Lady Devils expect a ‘great season’ By Nick Carroll The Plainville Citizen

The Plainville High School girls basketball team was slated to open its season Wednesday night against Bloomfield. The following takes a look at the 2011-12 Lady Blue Devils: Coach: Jen Micowski (4th year). Assistants: Lou Mandeville, Tim DeJohn. Last year: The Lady Blue Devils managed just four wins in their 20 games. Key loss: Becky Slivinsky. This year: Going into battle with a young lineup, the

Coming up ... The winter high school sports season kicks into full gear next week. Check out the Dec. 15 edition of The Citizen for PHS boys basketball, wrestling and boys swimming team previews, along with varsity schedules. Lady Blue Devils took their lumps last year. But the varsity experience the locals gained should prove invaluable this time around. Returning to the court this winter are seniors Mikayla Wells (guard), Nikki Dow (forward) and Alle Caponigro (forward), juniors Carly Martino (guard), Kelley Slabinski (guard) and

Katy Dressel (forward) and sophomore Kelsey Clemens (guard). Freshman guard Rachel Lancaster is pegged as a key newcomer. Dow, an All-Central Connecticut Conference South Division performer, and Wells are team captains. Outlook: Plainville has a lot of experience to turn to,

and the returning players are beaming with confidence. So it’s no surprise the Lady Blue Devils have set the bar fairly high this season. The locals are looking to return to the state tournament after a one-year absence, and to be a contender in the Central Connecticut Conference South Division. “I am excited and looking forward to a great season,” Coach Micowski said. “We have started out with very strong practices. We have a great group of girls who are committed to getting this program back into the state tournament and being competitive in every game on

our schedule.” However, Micowski knows that life in the CCC poses many challenges, and that her senior contingent will need to pull a lot of weight if the Lady Blue Devils are to thrive. “Our seniors are a great group of girls who have seen the success in the tournament and also experienced the disappointment of not making it. They are determined to end their careers on a high note,” said Micowski. “We have a talented group of athletes that work hard, and are looking to be rewarded this year.”

Plenty of plot lines in CIAC football playoffs By Jim Bransfield Special to The Citizen

While Plainville won’t be among the teams playing this Saturday, this year’s CIAC football championship games may well be the most attractive set of games in years. There are fascinating subplots to most of the games, too. In Class LL, the team

widely acknowledged to be the state’s best going in, the Xavier Falcons of Middletown, will undoubtedly be facing the best team they have seen this season in Staples of Westport. But more than that, the last time Xavier lost a game was to Staples in the 2009 playoffs. Since then Xavier has won 25 games in a row. In 2010, the Falcons had some

scares, including a threepoint win over Hillhouse, a one-touchdown win over Shelton, and tough games in the postseason against Glastonbury and Trumbull. But not this season. Xavier has blasted its way through its 12 games, winning every one easily. Indeed, Xavier has trailed just once, and only for a little over a minute. That came in

Special guest

the semifinal win over Norwalk when the Bears held a brief 7-6 first-quarter lead. But the final score of that one was 55-14. So much for suspense. Besides the reality that the last team to beat the Falcons was Staples, the other subplot is this is yet another round in the ongoing debate over which league is the best in the state, the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference (FCIAC) or the Southern Connecticut Conference (SCC). Staples is the FCIAC’s best and Xavier is the SCC’s best. Looks like high drama – and a lot of fun. The Xavier vs. Staples game will be the finale of the weekend with kickoff at 5:30 on Saturday at Rentschler Field in East Hartford. The FCIAC vs. SCC drama will see Act I in the game that precedes the LL clash when the SCC’s No. 2 team, Hand of Madison, takes on the FCIAC’s No. 2 club, New Canaan, for the L crown. In the semis, Hand knocked off Masuk, just about everybody’s No. 2 team, and did it in style, 35-14. New Canaan came from 24-7 down to beat the Central Connecticut Conference’s best team, pre-

viously unbeaten Windsor. Masuk, which breezed through its regular season, struggled against another SCC team in its playoff opener before pulling away from a 14-14 halftime tie to win 28-14 over North Haven. The SCC thinks it plays the best football. Maybe that will be validated Saturday. The hope around here was that Berlin could somehow make it to the M final, but undefeated Ansonia took care of that possibility by hammering the Redcoats, 4814. Berlin had a 9-1 regular season, but the truth is the Redcoats weren’t tested very much. The CCC, which has a habit of playing annual musical chairs with its football schedule, dealt Berlin a good hand this fall. That’s not Berlin’s fault: you play the teams the league tells you to play. But clearly there was no one on Berlin’s schedule the likes of Ansonia. But to be fair, there aren’t many teams as good as Ansonia on most team’s schedules. By the way, the CCC had seven of its 32 teams qualify for the postseason, but turned in a not so hot 3-7 record.

Life on Hamlin Pond

Continued from page 21

Photos by Francis Rexford Cooley

A heavy wet snow came down on Plainville bringing havoc to the town while shrouding Hamlin Pond during the weekend nor’easter on Oct. 29. A day later Hamlin Pond makes Plainville look deceptively peaceful under a blanket of new snow while 100 percent of the population was without power.

In Class M, Ledyard of the Eastern Connecticut Conference, a team with a tournament pedigree, will take on Ansonia at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Ansonia has been to more playoffs than any team in the state. The Chargers are the high school football equivalent of the New York Yankees and they have a legitimate superstar in running back Arkeel Newsome, who is a mere sophomore. Ledyard likes to play ball control and features a very good ground game. They had better be successful at it because if the Colonels don’t keep the ball away from the Chargers, they’ll be in trouble. Plainville wasn’t in the playoffs. At 5-5 the Blue Devils slipped back a bit from their tournament-qualifying season of 2010. The Blue Devils hoped to have a second consecutive winning season, but lost Thanksgiving to Farmington, a team that really has to be asking what it has to do to qualify. The Indians were 9-1, losers to only Windsor, and had a number of big wins including an 18-12 decision over Middletown late in the season. But Class L was loaded, and Farmington was left on the outside.

The S pairing Friday at 6:30 p.m. also has an interesting subplot. Holy Cross plays in the Naugatuck Valley League – as does Ansonia – and clearly is the NVL’s second best team. The Crusaders blasted HaddamKillingworth 42-14 in the opening round, but had to fight for their lives against Valley Regional. Holy Cross won the game, kicking a field goal in the final minute to break a 14-14 tie, then put the game away by returning an interception for a pick six a few seconds later. The question will be: Which of the two games is the real Holy Cross? In Cromwell, the Crusaders will be facing a highpowered offense. Cromwell quarterback Anthony Morales, the school’s topranked student, can play quarterback for just about anybody. He averages over 300 yards passing per game. Holy Cross is favored, based on the strength of its Class M, L and LL schedule. But Cromwell can light up the scoreboard. This game might be a track meet. If you’re going to The Rent, remember to bring your wallet. Parking isn’t free and the ticket prices for the game are hefty: $10 for adults and $5 for students. Heck, you can buy a bleacher seat at Yankee Stadium for those prices. You can also buy a suite that seats 20 for a mere $500 The Rent and can pay more to have a catering service feed you and your guests. High school games ain’t what they used to be, Virginia.

The first local fundraiser for the PCD Foundation will be held Saturday, Dec. 10, 7 p.m., at the Zen Bar, 317 Farmington Ave., Plainville. Primary ciliary dyskinesia or PCD is a rare disease affecting only about 1 in 16,000 people. A 1-year-old toddler has been diagnosed with the condition. The Kenny Mehler Band will perform. Raffle prizes from local businesses will be available and T-shirts and wristbands will be sold. There is a charge to attend and tickets can be purchased at the door.

was going to be for me to get back in my house,” he said. Corriveau’s timetable for return is a bit more optimistic, with realistic hopes of necessary repairs being done, or mostly done, by Christmas. “I look at it this way,” said Mich Corriveau, John’s wife. “Look at all the people that lost just everything, we’re lucky in a way, but still, since August it’s been like this.” Though the repairs to damage are a hassle, the bulk of Screen’s and Corriveau’s difficulties stem from haggling with insurance companies and FEMA. “It’s a tough road because I have flood insurance, but FEMA wouldn’t do [anything] until they got a letter, proof of loss from me,” John Corriveau said. “And I just got that letter.”

many citizens who hauled their leaves and brush to the landfill. Town Manager Robert E. Lee also praised the town workers for the many hours of hard work that they have put into brush chipping and hauling. “It’s a tremendous job, and there are still piles and piles of brush to be handled,” he said.

There are so many interesting things to investigate and thereby learn about the workings (and the great people) of our town. I really enjoyed my trip on “Old Brushtop.” Ruth Sharp Hummel is the town naturalist and town historian who writes regularly for The Plainville Citizen.

needed to augment my flood insurance to actually hire contractors to do the work,” Screen said. For the time being, Screen’s home looks like a construction zone, with walls taken apart and various instruments and supplies spread out. On Monday evening, Screen was on the phone again with FEMA, trying to explain why he still needs money from them. “I’m banging my head against my non-existent wall trying to make them understand,” he said. At Monday night’s town council meeting, Town Manager Robert E. Lee reported

on developments on the situation since a Nov. 22 meeting to discuss the Hazardous Mitigation Grant Program. One option is a FEMA-funded buyout, which would be 75 percent of the appraised value before the flood. The homeowner would be responsible for the remaining 25 percent of the value and the property would be owned by the town. The town would pay 25 percent of demolition costs. Eleven homeowners are seeking buyouts. Town Council Chairwoman Kathy Pugliese said it would be helpful if further funding is researched.

Task force openings

The Town of Plainville has openings on the Clean Energy Task Force. If anyone is a registered voter in the Town of Plainville and wish to be considered for this or any other board or commission, call the town manager’s office at (860) 793-0221, ext. 201 and request an application. Applications should be received by Friday, Dec. 16.

and turned over — a large rubber baby doll. Every trip after that for years, until the so called “dump” was better managed, I thought of that day. Through the years the river side of the “dump” became more respectable. The fact that it sits on an important aquifer, has been on many people’s minds and there are hopes of better days to come. But back to the leaves and brush. There is a townwide problem (as I write) with citizens who persist in raking their leaves to the roadside for pick up despite numerous announcements in local newspapers that the town cannot pick them up this year. Because of the huge brush problem caused by the October storm, many streets are just lined with leaf piles. Roadways Department Superintendent Dominick Moschini has stated that leaves that are still there when the first snow plows come through will be plowed back onto owners’ lawns. He also expressed his appreciation for the many,

didn’t always flood. He said he has explored the buyout option. Screen, who has lived in his home for just about as long as Corriveau has been in his, said he wants to rebuild, but knows it’s a risk. “I know I’m gambling by putting the house back together,” Screen said. Screen said the walls had to be opened up and sanitized, which he did himself. The walls are plaster, so he said he has to hire a plaster contractor to seal the walls up for him. He said there was no way he’d be able to sanitize the entire basement himself, so he had to hire a contractor. He said insulation still needs to be put back in, and wood that has been touched by the waters has to be sealed. “The work that I’ve done because I’m one person and having the disabilities and so forth, it’s just taking five times longer than if I had the money from FEMA that I

Screen, who is on disability from work because of a kidney transplant he received, said he has been doing work he’s not supposed to be doing as far as repairs go, but he had no choice since FEMA did not provide him with proper funds to hire contractors to do the work for him. He said he received about $26,000 from his insurance, but is still about $21,000 short. “FEMA was somewhat less than helpful and they didn’t provide any money toward repairing the house, at least at one point,” Screen said. “They and I have a dispute over exactly how much damage was done to my home. “They claim that their inspectors saw less damage to my home than what the actual estimates to repair it came back were.” Corriveau said he has lived in his house for more than 45 years, and the area

ticipating in the Livestrong program at the Wheeler Regional YMCA program. After receiving a grant from the Livestrong Association, several YMCAs have been given the chance to pilot a program that gets cancer survivors back on their feet after a long and courageous battle with the disease. Wellness coordinator April Chevalier is one of the three instructors for the program at the Y, which has nine participants in its current pilot run. She said the program covers a wide spectrum and exercise and wellness points, from cardiovascular, weight training, yoga, Zumba, and even nutrition. “Just watching the friendships bond between them has been one of the greatest things,” Chevalier said. “But also watching their confidence levels come up and giving them something to go to that’s fun for them, so they’re able to get out of the house and do something positive.”

Judy Jennings is a survivor of lung cancer after being diagnosed two years ago and is currently in remission, though still receiving treatment. She said someone at the Y had contacted her to let her know the program would be starting. “I was always very active before I got cancer, and since recovering, I just lost all energy and really the motivation to get started again,” Jennings said. “So this was the perfect opportunity because it was very specific.” Wellness coordinator Eileen Cyr said the bonding between participants was immediate, and everyone looks out for everyone. “In all the 30 years I’ve been working with the Y, this is the most rewarding program I’ve ever worked with,” Cyr said. Jennings said the bond between her and the other participants has been a “great opportunity.” “When we started out we cried together, but we also laughed together,” Jennings said. “And we just encourage one another — everyone’s a

great motivator.” Mike Tripputi is recovering from spine and bone cancer, which he said left his spine “deteriorated to the point of no return.” He said he joined the program to get his health and body back. “What was my biggest fear? Dying,” he said. “What was my biggest accomplishment? Overcoming it.” Tripputi, now in remission, said the disease curved his spine to shave off about 6 inches of his height. He said it left him believing he would never work again, but the program has helped him get back on his feet a little bit. “Because of this program I’m able to do a little bit of work,” he said. Shirley Osle, Plainville’s assistant town manager, is currently in recovery from breast cancer and receiving maintenance treatments. She said she was excited to hear about the program and to join. “One of the biggest things that I found going through my treatment, was that I had no energy,” Osle said. “I felt like I was just a couch potato,

I wasn’t doing anything.” Osle said the structure of the program helped her to make a positive commitment to come in and get herself moving again, which has helped her reach her goal of getting back to doing yoga — something she loved to do. “It has helped me tremendously,” Osle said. “I’m more energetic, I just saw my oncologist yesterday and she was so thrilled because she saw I was a lot more energetic now and more focused on becoming healthier.” Instructor Karen Nicosia said she expected the program to be rewarding and challenging but found it to be even better than that. “It’s beyond rewarding,” Nicosia said. “And it is more challenging than I thought it

would be in a constructive way.” Currently, the program meets twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The next session will begin in January and will have a daytime and evening session to accommodate more schedules. Chevalier also said they will try new and different things. “I think each session it’s just going to grow and have more to offer,” Chevalier said. “But with each group we have new people so their needs and wants are going to be maybe a lot different.” Anyone interested in participating in the Livestrong program at the YMCA can contact Chevalier by e-mail, april.chevalier@ghymca.org.
